Active supervision means focusing all of your attention on your children all of the time, when they are in, on or around the water. Supervision is not an occasional glance while you are busy with other activities, but being in constant visual contact with your child.
Depending on your child’s age, you may even need to be in the water and within arms’ reach at all times. For older children, be ready to enter the water in case of an emergency.
